On the mid-Alantic coast we only have bottlenose dolphins, and still there are too many tour operations and they get too close. But the dolphins seem more resilient.

I see getting close to orcas as like getting close to grizzly bears; 99% of the time it's simply exciting, and 1%.... I've had my share of solo grizzly expereinces and don't want any more. It's too easy to disrupt nature.
